Adam Shoalts' expeditions are sponsored by the Royal Canadian Geographical Society:
Adam Shoalts is a professional explorer. On his expeditions, he explores remote areas of the Canadian wilderness where no known expeditions have previously ventured. He has made the first exploration in recorded history of four different rivers. The Royal Canadian Geographical Society (RCGS) sponsored Shoalts' expeditions in 2011 and 2013, while in 2012 he blogged about his expedition for Canadian Geographic. He was elected a Fellow of the RCGS in 2013 for "extraordinary contributions to geography." Shoalts presented the Society's expedition flag to His Excellency, David Johnston, Governor General of Canada and patron of the RCGS. In 2014, Shoalts carried the famous flag of the Explorer's Club on his Arctic Expedition.
When not on major expeditions, Shoalts frequently undertakes smaller adventures, writes on a variety of topics, does archaeology, and works towards his Ph.D, specializing in interactions between aboriginal people and explorers.
